Cheers man yeah was looking at the different kits on the market. Would you recommend 35 or 55w and also nearly all kits come with canbus error eliminators. Do I need these? I?m going 5000k as don?t want the light to blue. Thanks
Here are some projector beam patterns:matched sets of gen 2 projectors... PM if you're interested.
As explained on https://www.skbowe.com/a/guide/ the 55 vs 35 is a tradeoff between life and brightness. In the US it doesn't matter either way, but I have had a report from Canada that 55w in the halogen projector was causing other drivers to flash, perhaps as a result of stricter headlight standards.Cheers man yeah was looking at the different kits on the market.

Nice! Remember for the install pics or it didn't happenThe dealer wanted $165 to disable my DRL's so I ended up getting a 3-day VIDA subscription from Volvo Tech Info and got the job done on my own time in my own garage for $65 less HID retrofit is full green light now, got all my parts, just need to find more time
Cheers for that! Was planning to do more straight wiring on my current retro project and it looks much nicer than using extra extensions.Also did a quick writeup on an alternate more advanced way to connect up the bi-xenon flapper wires without using a 9005 extension:
Thumbs up for the idea, man! So anyone with DRLs still active could get SKBOWe instead paying stupid volvo to disable them AND in the same time you can have real-behaving DRLs? That is a really cool solution for EU countries with obligatory lights 24/7, hats off for you sir :thumbup:....
Speaking of which, on the roadmap for Batch 3 is a DRL detector output based on the Pololu Medium RC Switch (2803) hardware (w/custom firmware) that can be integrated into the SKBOWE housing to provide a (-) signal when the dimmed-low-beam DRLs are activated. The idea would be to have an optional relay harness that could divert the low beam power to some other lights (e.g. fogs) when the DRLs are active, but switch back to the HID ballast at night - automatically!....
Those are correct, nice find!I just pulled the trigger on this pair of 2016-2017 Camaro Gen2 projectors. Fingers crossed I didn't make a noob mistake going with these ones.
How's this?maybe Shadow can mark up one of those posted pics (?).
+1 . If you buy projectors from Nick and preorder a SKBOWE batch 3 I'll throw in a set of Volvo color coded connectors for freeJust an FYI to people still interested, I have two sets of clean OEM projectors ready to go. Haven't heard from people over the past few months, but I also haven't been posting
